Just a great model!!! Congratulations to Seth!!!

Also wasn't the ZPU only used in the early eastern front?? Behind this may lie a conspiracy......
That other thread failed miserably and if you try to spam or flame here, I will break your arms.
FH2 won't be the last FH. ;)

to quote the Eat Uranium from his news post:
Quote
While it soon became apparent that it was lacking in fire power, it was never truly replaced in service during the war...

That means it was used to the end of WWII. But yeah, definately it should be more common on early EF maps  ;)

This is awesome! I love using AA guns in FH2. I'm sure I will never shoot down a plane with this, but I will waste entire rounds using it regardless. I do that with the AA Bren guns in Crete all the time.

Hats off to the dev team as always.

Nice AA! Remove Bofors, give ZPU AA batteries!

That's a compact little number. but how did it fire ? I can see some kind of mechanism connected to the 4 triggers. Is there something I can't see on the handles ?

I think there's a mechanism where if you depress one trigger, it also depressed all the others.

yes basically it is one bar with 4 arms just over the trigger mecanism.
When you pivot the bar by applying pression on one or more arm, it also pushes the other triggers.

here a pic of the bar pivoted 90° from the mg triggers (it shouldn't be so pivoted):

Oh I see, thanks. so the gunner would probably be swivelling the weapon with left arm and with right hand on the right MG trigger. Or maybe even two people operating it. I guess it would be pretty heavy to swivel around fast.

EDIT: Yes, two operator's according to this source:
